Tilda Rae Lakin

Graphic designer, Illustrator and Artist based in Bath

I’m intrigued by the abstract nature of the subtleties and sensitivities of life. When I create work I like to be intuitive, introspective and playful. Often I’m inspired by the simple things, the way a tree reflects on water, the vibrancy of the Indian textiles in my home or the unself-consciousness of a child’s drawing. I strive to create powerful atmosphere in my work using vivid colour, pattern and simple shape.  Instead of working on developing my own individual style, I like the aesthetic of each single project to emerge and guide the outcome. 


I find purposeful expression when combining my passions for health, nature and poetry within my illustrative design. I am passionate about people's connection with the planet and how the hidden and intricate intelligence of nature underlies everything in our lives.

BA (Hons) Graphic Communication
Bath Spa University

Grade: First Class

Whilst on my degree course, I gathered the critical, technical and aesthetic skills necessary to become a professional graphic communicator: designer, typographer, illustrator, or image­ maker. I found my unique style and my confidence within that. 


Foundation Diploma

in Art, Design and Media
Trowbridge College

Grade: Distinction

Through testing ideas and experimentation on my Foundation course, I became more open minded and intuitive with my work. The course expected a high standard of work to be produced at a very fast pace.
